An O'Fallon man says he was rear-ended by another driver while stopped on an on-ramp in Caseyville.
Larkin T. Wadsworth filed a lawsuit against Tayka Y. Labarre Sept. 25 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
Wadsworth says he was driving a 2007 Infiniti G35 on the entrance ramp to westbound Interstate 64 in September 2011. He had stopped behind two other cars on the on-ramp when he was hit from behind by a 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitarra being driven by Labarre, the petition says. The impact allegedly caused Wadsworth's Infiniti to hit the back of the car stopped in front of him.
Wadsworth claims he was hurt in the crash and is suing Labarre for negligence. He asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical expenses and court costs.
Attorney David E. Guymon of Belleville represents Wadsworth.
